For Mom...


It's almost 2 am and I just got off the phone with the airlines...I've booked a flight to Canada tomorrow morning to be with my dear Mom.  Her condition is deteriorating rapidly.

I made her this quilt two years ago to keep her warm and cozy.  It's hard to be parents, but I think even harder to be children and have to say good-bye to those who gave us life.

I won't be posting for a while, but will be thinking of all the wonderful friends I've made here since I first began on my blog journey.  Thanks so much.
